Harm van den Dorpel Honors Hacktivists and Netizens in London
…Macbeth’s nihilistic roar seemed to crackle in the background of Harm van den Dorpel’s exhibition “IOU” at London’s Narrative Projects. The show consists of works van den Dorpel made by staining thermo-sensitive paper using an open flame. The works themselves are not intrinsically nihilistic, though there is, both literally and figuratively, a darkness in the undefined shapes that haunt their surfaces.
